The Editor speaks: Motorists Monday morning n’mare

By Colin Wilson It was utter chaos this morning for motorists. A Monday morning nightmare they had to endure getting to work, especially if they were coming in from the west and travelling east. There was first an accident at Newlands and even worse second one on Shamrock Road in the vicinity of Peanuts Gas […]

The Editor speaks: You’re first – after me!

was pleased to see the Press Release from the RCIPSs we have published today. It is has, unfortunately, the somewhat boring heading “RCIPS issues traffic advisory to road users”. We have used it as a sub-heading, chnging the main heading to “Police warn drivers they MUST indicate and other ‘nuances’ to help traffic flow”. I […]

The Editor speaks: I give MLA Harris 10 out of 10 for speaking his mind openly

MLA Austin Harris, famous ex Rooster Radio Host, bravely spoke his mind in the Legislative Assembly, and lashed out at two of the leaders of the Cruise Port Referendum (CPR). He called Johann Moxam and Mario Rankin “muppets”, no doubt comparing them to the two miserable old men on the hit winning television puppet show. […]

The Editor speaks: New chills before the frills

So the Health Services Authority (HSA) is about to begin a major multi-million dollar capital project to upgrade the George Town hospital. However, don’t except any frills to be added to the interior or exterior structures that will be apparent to the naked eye when you visit the hospital. What you will immediately be aware […]

The Editor speaks: CPR Cayman now don’t want the Referendum (AS IS!!!)

I’m sure you’ve read the Premier’s response to the Legal Opinion on the Cruise Berthing Referendum and what the Opinion concludes. We have published both under Breaking News yesterday as soon as we received it. Other local media houses have done the same. CPR Cayman engaged the local legal firm Broadhurst to seek an Opinion […]

The Editor speaks: What is truth?

I was at a Professional Men’s Breakfast meeting this morning (Sat Oct 26) and the speaker, Rev. Nicholas Sykes, chose this as his subject. I am not going to repeat it what he said, except his title, and asking us if we had ever watched the television game show, “Family Feud”? Most of us said. […]

The Editor speaks: Family offices

We have published today a Press Release from GIS titled “Single family offices asked to participate in anti-money laundering consultation”. I have to confess I hadn’t a clue what it was all about. Single family offices? I know what single families are – but how many live in offices? What has that to do with […]

The Editor speaks: Is the job fair a “foul”?

There is a saying that “all is fair in love and war”. The concept behind the phrase is that some areas of life are so important and overwhelming that you cannot blame someone for acting in their own best interest. You can wreak all the havoc you want during the pursuit of true love. The […]

The Editor speaks: Halloween and horror is thrilling. Really?

The 31st October is approaching. It is less than a week away. This day is celebrated as “Halloween” and is also known as All Hallows’ Eve, or All Saints’ Eve. This is because it is the day before the Western Christian feast of All Hallows’ Day. Halloween has spurned many, many books and nearly as […]

The Editor speaks: Gambling, same-sex unions, pot – or not

Whilst I applaud MLA Kenneth Bryan for his initiative in trying to execute a national survey to gauge the public’s opinion on gambling, same-sex unions and marijuana laws, his venue for it is absolutely ridiculous. He made the announcement at a Press Conference last Thursday. His venue is to place stations outside each polling station […]
